How to Roll the Perfect CBD Flower Joint

So you’re ready to dip your toe into the world of CBD by rolling your own joints – nice! We at BudBros are big believers in the power of CBD, and we’re sure you’ll get the same benefits out of it as we do.

But before you can start puffing your way into relaxation, you’ll need to learn how to actually roll the things. It seems simple enough – just put some flower in some paper and roll it up, right? But if you’ve tried it, you’ll know it’s trickier than it looks.

No need to stress. Our CBD gurus have put together an easy step-by-step guide to help you roll joints like a pro. Follow these steps, and with a little practice, you’ll be rolling like Snoop in no time!

What You Need to Roll a CBD Flower Joint

First things first, put together your equipment. You’ll need a few key things:


CBD flower: Start by selecting your favourite CBD flower strain – look for buds that are dry, but not dry enough to crumble. Always buy your flowers from reputable sources that only sell organic, chemical-free bud. If you need a good starting point, we’ve curated a selection of premium flowers that have been lab-tested for purity and legal THC limits.

Rolling papers: Next up, choose some high-quality rolling papers. Hemp papers are a good first choice as they’re naturally more durable than classic wood pulp papers, making them less likely to tear or crease while you’re getting the hang of rolling. You should also start with single-wide papers (1 1/4 size). These are a manageable size to work with and give you more control over the amount of material you’re using. Some good brands to try are RAW, OCB, and Rizla.

Filter tip: A filter tip provides stability to the joint, helps prevent flower from entering your mouth, and allows you to smoke the entire joint without burning your fingers. Most rolling papers come with filter tips included.

Grinder: A grinder helps break down the CBD flower into shake, which gives it a uniform consistency. This makes it easier to roll and allows for a more even burn. Plastic grinders will do the job, but consider splashing out on a metal one for smoother grinding. The best grinders have a tray at the bottom to catch the kief released during grinding. Kief is a fine, powder-like substance rich in CBD and other compounds from the trichomes. You can use this collected kief in a joint later for an extra punch of CBD or press it into CBD hash or concentrate.

Pen or thin object (optional): You can use this to help pack the joint.

Rolling tray (optional): A tray helps keep your materials organised and prevents spillage.

How to Roll a CBD Flower Joint

Now it’s time to rock and roll! Here’s what you need to do:

1. Grind Your CBD Flower

Start by opening your grinder, breaking the bud into smaller chunks, and placing them inside. Twist the top of the grinder several times. Open it carefully to check if the bud is properly ground, holding it over the rolling tray to avoid any spillage.

When you’re starting out, we recommend using half a gram of CBD to see how it affects you. If you accidentally grind too much, don’t worry – you can always save the extra for later.

2. Make Your Crutch

Now make a crutch (also called a filter). Take a strip of filter tip paper and fold it back and forth a few times, like an accordion. Then, roll the crutch into a cylinder to match the thickness of your joint.

3. Place the Flower Into the Rolling Paper

Holding the rolling paper in one hand, place the crutch at one end and fill the rest of the paper with your ground CBD flower. Once you’ve added the right amount, use your fingers to shape the joint, making sure the flower is evenly distributed. Leave a bit of space at the end without the crutch for twisting the tip.

4. Roll Your Joint

Once you’re happy with the amount and placement of the flower, you can start rolling the paper. Pinch the paper and roll it back and forth to pack the flower into its final cone shape. This part can be tricky, so do it over the tray. If any flower falls out, just pick it up and put it back on the paper.

If you’re having trouble with this step, consider getting a joint rolling machine. These can make the process much quicker and easier.

5. Seal Your Joint

Lick the adhesive strip of the rolling paper, applying just enough moisture to make it sticky, but not too much to make it soggy. Carefully press the adhesive strip against the rolled paper to seal the joint, and smooth it out with your fingers to make sure it’s sealed properly.

6. Pack Your Joint

Finally, pack the open end of the joint with a pen or chopstick for a more even burn. Give the end a twist to keep everything in place. 

7. Start Smoking!

And there you have it – the perfect CBD joint! Now it’s time to light up, sit back, and puff away.
